The votes are in and affirmative for making sure that your fly fishing adventures are easy on the eyes. Set your sights on these strategies for enjoying a sunny day on the water.

• Invest in quality shades. Polarized wrap-arounds stay put through the wildest action, protect your eyes from UV rays and always look cool.

• Supersize your focus with a clip-on magnifier. The hinged, rectangular viewer attaches to your hat brim and gives you flip-down access to clearer vision for detail work.

• Zip your tippet through the rod’s smallest eye with a sight-saving fly threader. This little tool really comes in handy during low-light sunrises and sunsets.
